Blenta Gains Cobb ‘Champion’ Award in Sweden

02 February 2017

SWEDEN - One of Sweden’s leading poultry companies, Blenta, has been presented with a Cobb ‘Champion’ award for achieving an average hatchability of 90 percent.

“It was a great pleasure to present this award,” said Tom Procter, Cobb sales manager in Scandinavia. “The farm manager Kent Andersson, in particular, thoroughly deserves to be recognised for such a consistently high hatch. The attention to detail that Kent and his team demonstrates is second to none, as seen in his continually exceptional performance.’’

Torbjörn Persson, chief executive of Blenta, stated: “We are exceptionally proud at Blenta to become a Cobb ‘Champion’. Kent and all our other employees are doing a great job with the birds. To achieve this award is only possible through excellent management all the way through our production chain — from placing day-old parent stock right through to quality broiler chicks from our hatchery.”

The Cobb ‘Champion’ awards were introduced by Cobb Europe last spring to recognise world class performance in breeder, hatchery and broiler performance, with the first awards going to companies in South Africa, Germany and the UK.
